Everyone takes something slightly different to camp, but sometimes, you may need a quick sheet to start from, or some ideas for your own.

Here is an example camp kit list for a week camp:

Activity Wear – eg trousers/joggers, t-shirts, jumpers, sweatshirts – no jeans
Walking Boots or a second pair of trainers.
Wet weather gear  – ie cagoule, wellington boots and  waterproof trousers if you have them
Trainers
Underwear / socks
Sun hat/ sun cream
Pyjamas & sweater to sleep in
Toilet bag with handle to hang up
Soap, flannel, toothbrush, toothpaste
Small towel
Hairbrush/ comb
Hairbands
Sanitary protection if needed
Tissues
Personal First Aid Kit – insect repellent.
Matches
Gloves – for conservation work

ALL CLOTHING SHOULD BE PACKED IN A STUFFSACK OR HOLDALL.
SUITCASES ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR USE IN A TENT

Sleeping bag and sleeping roll.
Small cushion or inflatable pillow in a pillowcase
Blanket(s) and pins to hold in place
Teddy, or similar
Plate, bowl, mug (all unbreakable) knife, fork, dessertspoon, teaspoon and tea towel in a bag with a drawstring
All clearly marked with something that will not wash off

EVERYTHING SHOULD BE CLEARLY MARKED WITH THE OWNERS NAME
